Hi, my name is Laurence and I work at Stayci Serviced Apartments for over 2 years now. I was born in The Hague and I live here for over 34 years already. I dare to say that I know this city by heart!
I firmly believe the best way to explore a city’s character is on foot. It’s that magical combination of sights, sounds and smells that makes a place unique. The smell of fresh baked bread from the local bakery. The sounds of the city waking up in the morning. Blossom trees flowering in spring. Hear locals speak in their own language or the smell of freshly ground coffee. All of this is just impossible from behind the windows of a tour bus. It simply gives you more time to experience the city and its surroundings and it gives you sort of the feeling that you’re a part of it instead of being just a visitor. Because who doesn’t want to live like a local, right?
Just like a whole lot of other cities on our beautiful planet, The Hague has tons of awesome things to discover. But what I think what is a little underrated, are the magnificent walking routes through and around the city. Since I live here for over 34 years, long enough to give you the best local impression of hidden gems, I feel the urge to tell you about it!
So, hop on! I’m going to take you(digitally) on a tour along all of my hidden treasures of nature in and around The Hague.
